Good god I love Indie horror. I grew up on a steady stream of Troma and Full Moon movies as a kid (Ask your parents). There is something about a movie that is shot on a shoe string budget by people who love what they are doing, its elevates the idea into an art form.
Garden Party Massacre is a low budget, indie send up of your typical horror movies. Imagine if you would The 3 Stooges taking on Sam Raimi and you get the idea behind Garden Party Massacre.
Written, directed and starring Gregory Blair, Massacre begins as typical get together of several friend but quickly turns into a comedic romp that had me giggling throughout the film. Massacre doesn’t take itself seriously and neither should you.
One of the hardest things to do is nail horror comedy, and Garden Party Massacre hits all the bloody beats in its brisk 1:10 play time and it uses every moment it has to full effect.
The pros – There are a lot of chuckles to be had and when you think you have the movie figured out, you don’t.
The Cons – Its a low budget indie movie. Some of the acting is questionable, but I still had a damn good time watching this flick.
Garden Party Massacre is currently making the round on the festival circuit and from what I have seen, audiences are eating it up. Check out the trailer below.
